Richard has been a LSI Board Member since 2005, serving in the roles of vice-president and treasurer. He is a full time pastor for a Chester, Vermont congregation. When asked why he serves on the Board, Richard stated, “Lincoln Street doesn’t just care about the people served; it provides true hope; a quality of life that doesn’t really exist anywhere else while maintaining the person’s dignity above all else. Otherwise, people who have such special needs would be forgotten by society around us. The Service Coordinators are loving, patient, and concerned about the people, and I am truly humbled and honored to serve with them. They are a great inspiration to me personally.”
George has served on the LSI Board of Directors since 2007, and he is proud to be served by the staff of Lincoln Street. George says, “If I need help, I can always go to my Service Coordinator. I get information from the Board, and when I share with others, they can become educated, too.”
